A powerful pairing of two different disciplines of Asana (yoga postures); Yinyasa has fused the Yin style of long-held passive poses with the dynamic, yang style of Vinyasa (flow). Traditionally a Yin practice is best if done on a "cold" body and passively stretches your connective tissue to promote health of your joints and internal organs. Thus, this class will begin with Yin to open the body to more flexibility and energy flow while encouraging a more contemplative, non-reactive quality of mind. After a few long held poses the class will move into a flow to strengthen and invigorate the body and mind. Overall this class is 60 minutes of self care!
